Description

This hilarious, Monty Python style sendup of the classic knight-and-dragon story comes with jaunty rhymes and a fabulous twist ending. Mischief! Mishaps! "Dragons!" Here's the story of an intrepid knight, only our narrator can't quite remember the details. Did that knight carry a sandwich, or a sword? Was he supposed to fight a cat, or a dragon? A hilarious and unpredictable adventure ensues, building through laugh-out-loud rhymes until, at last, the narrator remembers his own role at the center of all the marvelous madness. Fans of Jon Scieszka's "The Stinky Cheese Man," David Ezra Stein's "Interrupting Chicken," all of Patrick McDonnell's and Mac Barnett's picture books will love this zany read-aloud adventure.

Professional reviews

"Narrator John Keating's British accent transports listeners into the thick of the action in this story--but what IS the action? It seems this knight is having trouble remembering the details. Where was he going? "To movie night" or "to a daring fight"? And why? Because his friend Clop, his physical characteristics unremembered, needed rescue. From what? Unknown. As Keating narrates the knight's quest, he elongates and draws out words for emphasis. His voice rises with each perplexing question, pauses, and then speeds into an answer that accentuates the rhyme: "He wasn't pulling any punches, out came all the dragon's lunches." The quirky ending is most satisfying. A.R. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
